I was surprised that my post about human trafficking was very popular. Here are some other creative ads that create awareness around the subject of human trafficking, prostitution and slavery.


I know it is not a fun subject to talk about, especially in the Holidays season. But we cannot keep our eyes shut and stay silent!


Naughty or good?

Women for sale?

Not so long ago I was working at an advertising agency, more specifically a “cause marketing” advertising agency. Now I am in the online media industry, but I still have a weak spot for an impactful creative.

I came across this installation marketing in Tel Aviv against human trafficking. Using real women with price tags at a shopping mall will definitely create buzz and create awareness.

Did you know that human trafficking is estimated to be a $7 billion dollar annual business?

Here are some other creative from around the world against human trafficking:

A pretty neat retail installation created by Snarchitecture in collaboration with designer Richard Chai. The installation envelops visitors with a glacial cavern and creates a unique fashion experience. The “ice cave” is opened under New York’s High Line from October 21,2010 to October 31, 2010.

My love for shoes!

Since I was a little girl I loved shoes! I believe I inherited my addiction from my grandpa. I remember going with him to his favourite shoe store in Jounieh (Beirut, Lebanon) and looking at shoes. One day he came back home with two new pairs and realized he has bought the same ones couple of weeks ago.
You can never have enough shoes. I always try to rationalize my shoe purchase; new job, business presentation, party… But come on, who am I kidding? First of all you don’t need an occasion to buy a new pair of shoes and second of all your purchase should never be rationalized! Where is the fun in that?
For my birthday last week, I bought my first pair of Fluevogs (they won’t be my last pair for sure).  Did you know that John Fluevog is an actual person? I didn’t, until I checked out the brand. John Fluevog makes cool, funky, crazy and good quality shoes. Some might think that his designs are very weird, but as he puts it “No you’re weird”.  His shoes are definitely unusual, and that’s what makes them interesting and unique. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to spell the name; you are not the only one! Check out the website and indulge yourself with a pair or two or more.

I love advertising!

There is no second chance at making a good impression. If ads don’t catch your attention within seconds they are considered failed. I came across the new French Connection campaign and it made me look twice. It is memorable, provocative and it connected with me.

From their first FCUK campaign, French Connection established their brand as being innovative, creative, exciting, pushing boundaries and making a statement. The new French Connection campaign studies the men and women behaviours, clothing and styles.

The creative brains behind the campaign:

Fashion and advertising, a great way to end the weekend and start the week feeling creative and inspired.
